to try. >> okay. >> so ms. kelley is getting supposedly these harassing e-mails, and she talks to a buddy of hers on the fbi. and he goes to the agency and says we should really investigate this. then the fbi finds out that he sent shirtless pictures of himself to ms. kelley and now he's under investigation. this is just -- this just looks bad all the way around. >> we're not sure if that's just exactly the only reason why he's under investigation. and we don't know exactly, you know, the nature of this shirtless picture. they are in florida. it could have been that the families were at the beach and he sent a picture of himself and others in swimsuits. we just don't know that at this point, if it was that type of picture or if it really was a lewd picture. a lot has been said about him being on the case and removed from the case. he was never the case agent. she went to him because she knew him and they were friends and said she had received these threatening e-mails. he reports that in the tampa office and it's immediately assigned to the people who are experts, the cyber squad. agent o

of communications between allen and ms. kelley. although it's not clear if the e-mails involved sexual material or classified information. overnight in charlotte, north carolina, fbi agents searched the home of paula broadwell, seen leaving the home with boxes, suitcases, and photographs. new details, meanwhile, continue to emerge about the fbi's handling. >> so i wonder -- we've talked about judges offering warrants. i wonder what judge offered a warrant to go in there -- >> it's consent. >> this is consensual. >> yes, the fbi agent who launched the initial investigation was later pulled off the case due to inappropriate behavior, including allegedly sending shirtless photos of himself to jill kelley. >> that was sent before the investigation began. jill kelley went to him after receiving the shirtless photos about this complaint. >> and jill kelley is a friend of the petraeus family. that agent apparently grew concerned the investigation into the harassing e-mails had stalled. and contacted a member of congress. even though the white house reportedly was still unaware of the case. chair of th
with the bureau for many, many years. he and his wife have been social friends with ms. kelly and her husband for many years. >> this is the same fbi agent who sent jill kelley shirtless pictures of himself. you have probably heard a lot of coverage about that. his lawyer goes onto say, among those pictures was one of mr. humphreys, posed with two dummies side-by-side with him. that picture was imbedded among other correspondence. there is nothing in the picture. there is no sexual combonenant in the picture. he merely reported the matter to the proper comwhennant of the bureau and had nothing to do with the investigation. he followed fbi protocol and did not have part of the case. that is from the attorney who said he is representing

with this person that he's trying to help, miss kelley. so he wasn't taken off the case. what happens is as the information gets to is ms. broadwell having an affair with david petraeus, has she potentially compromised his e-mail. another thing we have to focus on here, david petraeus was never the target of the investigation, paula broadwell was for alleged stalking and then maybe compromising the director of the cia's e-mail which they found out later that actually is not what happened. so as this rises to the level of the director of the central intelligence agency, this is now reported up to fbi headquarters which says the prudent thing, which is well, first thing we need to do is let's keep a tight hold on this until we figure out what we have. so as this agent who was the friend of miss kelley is inquiring what's new with the case, what's new with the case, what's new with the case, at some point he's cut off. he's not thrown off the case, was never on it, but he's getting information on the case. he's apparently funneling it back to miss kelley. miss kelley is apparently later
